Arhe, who threw Archbishop Yahum in front of the Sun Protestant priests, had a proper party this time.
“About the case of monopolizing the Lord’s attention. Cheers everyone!”
The Priests of the Temple of Abundance were excited and drank alcohol.
One time when he said that he would extend the temple for free while entrusting the holy relics. Twice I got to see Elaine’s cuteness properly at the wizards’ athletic meet. Lastly, three times about giving precious royal blueberries as a gift for them.
They were able to increase their favorability for Elaine three times in total, and they were genuinely delighted to have monopolized the Lord’s attention.
But for a while.
“But, Bishop. What if we fail again this time?”
When one of the priests talked about what-if, the festive atmosphere cooled down.
And Arge, who drank the blueberry wine he was holding, tapped her shoulder as if not to worry.
“As far as I’m concerned, that’s never going to happen.”
“Yeah, the Archbishop is a man who cares deeply for the priests under his command. If you see the priests who sent you to fetch the relics doing bad things, will you try to get them anyway?”
“Aha. So like that… ?”
Arhe nodded his head.
The reason why I had to summon him and throw him to the place where the priests of the Sun Protestant Church were working was because he was well aware of Yahum’s disposition.
In fact, he was very angry when I showed him the inside of the warehouse.
It would be very difficult for the lord if they left right away, but Arge was confident.
He was confident that the Temple of Abundance could take its place.
“So, don’t worry about it and drink it cold. The goddess of victory is smiling at us.”
The priest sighed in relief at her words, which he was sure of even referring to other gods.
If that’s what the bishop said, then it would be so. The atmosphere that had been hardened had faded away and a warm breeze blew around.
It was around the time when everyone was celebrating the victory with a smile hahahoho.
The good news came from outside.
“Bishop. The Lord is looking for you outside.”
Oh. Has the Archbishop already done a great job?
Arge was convinced that Elaine, who had lost the Sun Protestant priests, had found the Temple of Abundance in their place.
Arhe forcibly lowered the corners of his lips, which he kept trying to raise, because he couldn’t be happy in front of the lord.
After that, as I walked with the saddest thoughts in the world, I saw Elaine in the distance.
Arge, who actually found Elaine, greeted him warmly, forgetting to manage his facial expressions.
“Lord! Did you wait long?”
“no. I didn’t wait that long.”
Saying so, Elaine took a step back.
Arge, who tilted his head at him, took another step closer, and this time Elaine took two steps back.
“that… Lord? Am I doing anything wrong?”
Arge raised his sleeve and sniffed to see if it was because of the stench.
But there was nothing but the sweet smell of alcohol.
Arhe lowered the corners of her eyes as if she couldn’t understand, and Elaine raised her palms and said.
“It’s nice to know you.”
“Yeah? If it’s because the smell of alcohol is too strong, please wait. I’ll change my clothes right now!”
“… Say you know it well, cancel.”
Shaking her head as if she couldn’t stop it, Elaine handed a piece of paper to Charon who was beside her.
Receiving it respectfully, Charon approached Arge, who was standing still, and handed the paper.
“what is this?”
Arge was puzzled, but followed Elaine’s words and read what was written on the paper.
And she soon had no choice but to tremble in shock.
1. The sale of royal blueberries to the people of the Temple of Abundance is prohibited.
2. Whatever the Priests of the Sun Protestant Church ask for, we must listen to them.
3. People in the Bountiful Temple are prohibited from approaching within a 1km radius of the lord’s castle and the lord.
What? These vicious provisions, as if they were made to torment the people of the Temple of Abundance.
Arhe’s mouth was opened at the content that was painful just to look at.
and tilt your head.
Why did the Lord show me such a terrifying thing?
When I looked at the situation with eyes asking for an explanation in a situation that I couldn’t understand no matter how much I thought about it, an answer came out from right next to me.
“The above is a punishment given to the Priests of the Temple of Abundance who dared to covet the lord’s property, and the period of application is three months.”
“Yeah? Wait a minute, knight. Do you covet the lord’s property? We never did that!”
“You really think so?”
At Elaine’s question, Arge kept her mouth shut.
When I asked with such a confident face, I could not nod my head without knowing why.
Unbeknownst to me, doubts began to grow that I had tampered with the lord’s property.
And it’s probably not.
“Priests of the Sun Protestant Church. Arge-san did it, right?”
At those words, Arge felt the darkness in front of her eyes.
Elaine already knew everything.
That the Temple of Bountiful had been working behind the scenes to drive out the Sun Shinto priests.
But apart from that, Arge felt a big question.
Why does the act of expelling the Sun Protestants result in tampering with the lord’s property?
Elaine herself answered the question on her face that was written so openly.
“The Sun Protestant priests decided to provide me with labor. That means, the moment they signed the contract, they became workers for my employer.”
In a nutshell, what they did was to get people working under other people.
That’s odd indeed.
“I don’t think there’s any malice, but I don’t mean to forgive meekly.”
“Come on, lord! Listen to me for a moment… !”
“No access within 1km.”
Arge’s body, which was about to sag by grabbing Elaine’s leg at the sound of the low-pitched voice, came to a standstill.
snuggle up. As he slowly turned his head like un-oiled scrap metal, Charon, who had a cold expression on his face, raised his glasses.
“If the above is violated, the Temple of Abundance will be permanently ousted from the Flos estates. Would you still do it?”
Arge, who shook his head hastily, quickly stepped back and stuck to the temple wall.
Arhe shows a strong will as if he will never violate the above.
Elaine nodded satisfactorily at her appearance and smiled broadly.
“Then see you in three months.”
Elaine, who turns back with a gentle hand greeting, is really wild.
If it’s short, it’s short, if it’s long, it’s long.
Desperate for not being able to see the lord in the meantime, Arhe finally let go and shouted.
“This is a dream!”
Arguably, it was clear that Elaine’s punishment was the strongest that Arge felt.
Arhe, who was sitting by the window where the blue moonlight was shining, watching the fallen leaves, slid his upper body all the way onto the wide table.
“Huh. How did it happen?”
In one hand of Arge who was complaining like that, there was a glass of wine. In the other hand was a bottle of strong wine.
Arge, who had already drank a bowl, was drunk and lamented his condition by blowing a bottle.
“I didn’t mean to do that. The Lord doesn’t even know my heart… .”
I just wanted to get the Lord’s attention.
However, the act of trying to win the lord’s heart turned into a harm to her.
In the end, it is nothing more than showing a lot of literally selfish images of people who cause trouble to others for the sake of self-satisfaction.
Arge trembled at the self-hatred that climbed up his spine.
After three months, I have to properly apologize to the lord.
But will the Lord look at me with the same eyes as before?
What if you avoid me even after 3 months?
Fifty thousand thoughts made Arge pure.
Unlike the time when she was leisurely enjoying the night crop with the clear moon as her friend, today, she was just a pathetic person, blowing a bottle and lamenting her life.
How much alcohol have you been drinking?
Suddenly, I looked up at the pretense of popularity I felt next to me, and I saw El Nok looking down at me with an absurd face.
And Arge’s impression of seeing his face was one.
“Unlucky guy… . Are you here to make fun of me?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, but this is certain. I mean, you don’t even hear what I’m saying.”
“What kind of bullshit?”
“Last time I told you to drink alcohol in moderation. My body is broken.”
“Don’t mess around and get out of here.”
He said he was speaking in a threatening way, but his tail was drooping badly because he was drunk.
Thanks to that, Elnok, feeling no threat, shrugged his shoulders and sat down openly.
Arge, furious at his brazen attitude, tilted his head instead of shouting.
“But what are you doing?”
“I’m peeling the kidney beans.”
“Then why are you taking it off all of a sudden?”
“It’s a gift from a young resident. If you want to keep it for a long time, it is better to dry it well.”
“… what the. I’m very good at drying it.”
The answer came back more than I expected.
Arge, who picked up the new cork, did not try to one-shot it, but glanced at Elnok.
… By the way, why did Article 2 of the 3 Articles come to mind now?
In the end, Arge, who put down the wine bottle and grabbed his fiery hair, spread out his palms.
“I want you too.”
“No, I’m fine.”
“Oh, it’s okay, so give it to me.”
Arhe sat down next to him despite Elnok’s reluctance to remove the bean pods.
If Elaine had seen it, she would be like, ‘Well! It’s great to see you taking the lead!’
“Ah, you can’t be so harsh!”
“Ugh, nagging. Just do a little.”
“You’re saying it because you can’t do it roughly!”
Arge, who was drunk, could not delicately remove the bean pods.
Thanks to this, Arge, who had been able to hear all the nags he had heard for a year in one sitting, had no choice but to peel off the pods hard to cover his mouth.
How much time has passed like that?
Arge, who smiled proudly as he watched the work that was almost finished, rubbed his wrinkled shoulders and lifted his head.
And she noticed. The fact that Elnok, who was nagging hard next to him, disappeared like hell.
“Hey, did this sneak away!?”
“Where are you running?”
As Arhe jumped up in bewilderment, Elnok, who appeared at the right time, held out a steaming mug.
Arge, who suddenly received it, stared blankly at the warm mug.
“What is this?”
“Honey. I think I need it.”
Come to think of it, my body was trembling in the autumn night air.
The meticulous consideration of Elnock who noticed this is really warm.
How could a guy you considered an enemy show you such kindness… .
Arhe, who had been enchanted for a moment by the unacceptable thing, suddenly woke up to his hand tapping on his shoulder.
“It’s a lot of trouble.”
“… … .”
‘No, in the first place, you’re the reason I’m here all this time!’
In an instant, the heart that had been moved was transformed into a heartbreaking emotion.
If only it wasn’t for clause 2. If only that guy hadn’t suddenly removed the pods. I wouldn’t have had to do anything like this.
Do you have a lot of trouble?
“You, please don’t be nice to me all of a sudden!”
Arhe patted Elnok’s hand with a bright red face.
And then shout at him, who is bewildered.
“You must have almost misunderstood me!”
Elnock was stunned by her conversation, which she couldn’t keep up with.
Where the hell can you get a nasty misunderstanding about giving honey?
No, what is a gross misunderstanding in the first place?
At the truly absurd remark, Elnok was at a loss for words.
